If..: If you are having pelvic pain pregnancy is a possibility. However there might be other problems causing your symptoms like for example an infection.

The intensity of the pain does not always reflect the seriousness of the condition causing the pain. Severe abdominal pain can be from mild conditions, such as gas or the cramping of viral gastroenteritis. On the other hand, relatively mild pain or no pain may be present with life-threatening conditions, such as cancer of the ...Read more

I always feel heavy abdominal pain and bloating in my stomach. What is the cause for this symptoms? Is this also a sign of pregnancy?

I always feel heavy abdominal pain and bloating in my stomach. What is the cause for this symptoms? Is this also a sign of  pregnancy?

Not always...: There are lots of reasons for abdominal discomfort & bloating, & not all of them are due to the GI tract. Even "functional" syndromes may be present without underlying "disease." however PSBO (paralyzed gut) due to metabolic & inflammatory conditions nearby (like an untreated infection of the urinary tract) must be considered &addressed. Check with doctor for examination & the right treatment. ...Read more

7 days before period is due having cramping right and left  of lower abdomen already have ovulated.  Early sign of pregnancy?

Probably not: It would be very unlikely for cramping one week after ovulation to be a sign of pregnancy. You should check a pregnancy test given that you are trying to get pregnant. This is most likely related to ovarian cysts and will also likely improve as your period approaches. ...Read more
